Steeped in both the joy and the heartache of their own lived experience, Heavy Hinges' music is simultaneously jubilant and heavy-hearted. With a dark and soulful longing, Mayalou Banatwala’s dynamic vocals adorn textured, well-crafted songs with an authenticity that is both infectious and disarming. While Heavy Hinges' roots originate in the time-honored traditions of rock & roll, r&b, and blues, there is more to Heavy Hinges that. Their music is tastefully ornamented with nuanced embellishments, inspired by influences ranging from eons-old chain gangs to rock & roll icons. Heavy Hinges’ mosaic of influence spans generations, culminating in an earthy and spirited sound that is deeply reverent to the past...and compellingly relevant to the present. Heavy Hinges’ catalog has grown to include four remarkable releases to date; Mean Old City, Cause a Scene, Lonely, and Live at Radio Artifact, a live performance captured in an eerily empty night club, shut down by the covid pandemic. As Heavy Hinges get set to begin work on their next recording, they continue to follow their instincts as they continue their unique journey as an emerging American band.
